New High for MB Village?

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

We're in an upcycle in Manhattan Beach real estate that is seeing all kinds of new highs carved out.

Pick your category. New construction on a single lot in the Tree Section? How about $3.6M and $3.7M, hit last August at 705 26th and 709 26th.

Strand dirt? How about 104 The Strand at $9.500M in February this year?

East MB new construction? 1626 1st (5br/5ba, 4950 sq. ft.) hit $3.200M (see "3.2 Is the New Crest for East MB").

Townhomes east of Highland? All of a sudden $2.8M is the new normal after it had never been hit: First, 2520 Alma, then 2300 Alma, and, now in escrow, new 408 32nd (pending). (Plus, we hear 2520 Alma is set to resell for more.)

Joining the fray now is a new listing behind the gates of the MB Village: 22 Chatham (4br/3ba, 2950
